It only takes one look at Netflix's Top 10 to see people are kind of obsessed with Heartstopper. The coming of age story, which follows two teenage boys, Charlie and Nick, as they navigate high school, love and heartbreak, is based on a graphic comic of the same name.
The first season of Heartstopper only covers the first two volumes of Alice Oseman's books, and seeing as there are seven volumes in total, can we expect a season two of the Netflix adaptation? Here's everything we know so far, from expected release date to trailer and what the cast have said.
Who will star in Heartstopper season 2?
Big news! On 4th November 2022, Netflix revealed three of the new cast members who will be joining Heartstopper for season two. In a tweet, they posted: " HEARTSTOPPER S2 NEWS! Introducing... Bel Priestley as Naomi / Ash Self as Felix / Thibault De Montalembert as Stephane."

When was Heartstopper season 2 been confirmed?
As of 20th May, Netflix confirmed a second season of the much loved show is happening - and a third, too! Graphic novel author and illustrator Alice Oseman will return as writer and creator, while Netflix announced the news with a series of photos of the cast pulling the peace sign, putting two fingers up for two more seasons! Clever.
Kit Connor and Joe Lock, who play Charlie and Nick, have previously been vocal about their hopes for a follow up, with Kit telling Cosmopolitan UK, "All of us [are keen for a season two.] Every single one of us - we all would love to come back. And hopefully if you guys enjoy this first season, then we will."
Heartstopper cast confirm season 2 is in production with cute video
Back in September 2022, Netflix UK and the official show account posted a video on Instagram confirming production had started. Featuring some memorable faces from series one, the video also lets the cat out of the bag that they're expanding the cast. The caption reads: "HEARTSTOPPER SEASON 2 IS OFFICIALLY IN PRODUCTION! 🍂 get ready to say hi to some brand new faces."
What could happen in season 2 of Heartstopper?
"The Paris trip!" Kit told Cosmopolitan UK. "I'd love to see more of Isaac, Elle and Tao. I'd love to see a bit more of Tori as well." Kizzy Edgell, who plays Darcy, added, "Darcy gets everyone drunk in Paris, so I think that would be kind of fun."
Elsewhere, a season two could also give us a more in depth look at Charlie and Nick's romance, now that they've been on their first official date to the seaside. There's no doubt Ben, who threatened to expose the secret relationship, will continue to stir up trouble, while fans are hoping to see Tao and Elle's relationship develop.
The third book's official description reads, "Charlie didn't think Nick could ever like him back, but now they're officially boyfriends. Nick's even found the courage to come out to his mum.
"But coming out isn't just something that happens once - there's Nick's older brother, and a school trip to Paris, not to mention all the other friends and family - and life can be hard, even with someone who loves you by your side. As their feelings get more serious, Charlie and Nick will need each other more than ever before."
What is Heartstopper's expected release date?
Sadly, no news on when Heartstopper season two will be released, but considering it was only confirmed in May 2022, we doubt it would be on screens before 2023.
The first season filmed between April 2021 and June 2021, meaning the series only took three months to shoot, and was later released in April 2022. So, now we know it's in production, we'd likely see it on screens in mid-2023 earliest.
